Report From The Tower
1 Corinthians 14
23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?
24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:
25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.
I was led to this area of scripture this morning as I was considering what God has been doing in the last few weeks. Unsaved people have apparently been given accurate dreams from God, and they are visiting my website, only to find confirmation for what they have been given.
God has always intended to use prophecy as a means of convincing, and of judging. Prophecy, in the church, should reveal the secrets of menís hearts. The gift, in itsí proper use, should manifest the power of God so convincingly that the unsaved, and unbelieving should be falling down on their faces in worship unto God.
This morning, the Lord said it is time that Watchmen Prophets Assembly must step up to another level. The Lord is asking for, and requiring more.
Scripture speaks of the need for stirring up gifts.
2 Timothy 1
6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
This gift, when stirred will bring forth the power of God, but it will not be done without a sound mind. There is no hint that weird, spooky so called super spirituality is in view here. This is sound stuff, bathed in love.
1 Timothy 4
12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
When anyone comes into our midst, it should be known that such a one has entered the company of the prophets. This was written of Saul:
1 Samuel 10
9 And it was so, that when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, God gave him another heart: and all those signs came to pass that day.
10 And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them.
11 And it came to pass, when all that knew him beforetime saw that, behold, he prophesied among the prophets, then the people said one to another, What is this that is come unto the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?
12 And one of the same place answered and said, But who is their father? Therefore it became a proverb, Is Saul also among the prophets?
13 And when he had made an end of prophesying, he came to the high place.
I remember something that prophet Bob Griffin wrote some time ago. He said that the Lord told Him to tell His prophets to come back to Him. Godís prophets had become discouraged, and had drifted away. Their close and passionate devotion had waned. God is calling His prophets to come back to Him. He wants us to prophesy further, and once again, but we must draw close to Him to do it.
And now, to do it; to stir up the gift that is within me, oh Lord my God.
PROPHECY And WORSHIP
Thou art the maker and creator of all things. You have drawn the lame and the infirm. You are giving dreams of terror to women who have been adulterous. Such a woman feels she is not even worthy to offer up a prayer, yet you are reaching out your hand to these adulterous women. You are extending your hand of mercy. There is still time, you are saying to the adulterous woman who is reading this. You can leave this life, but you must make a clean break. You must stop this sin and repent at once. I will help you, says the Lord.
Oh God, we worship and honor you in the highest, and on Earth. You are great Lord, and we love you. You are calling men out of darkness into your marvelous light. There is one named Vince right now who is reading these words. You have been mired in darkness. You cannot and have not been able to break free from pornography, and you are having urges now to go further, and to act out some of your despicable fantasies. You must repent now, while there is still time for you. Do not believe the lie. God is able to change your heart. God is able to deliver you from this bondage. There is no life in this thing: Only death. Repent quickly, while there is still time Vince.
Lord, we lift your hands in praise to you. We honor you. You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Lifting of hands and praying in the spirit) You are the Lord of my life. You are my life.
There is someone reading this word today who is very depressed. In fact, many are depressed, but you, you are ready to kill yourself. You have purchased the gun. It is a Smith and Wesson revolver. You have the ammunition. I see it laying on the desk in front of you. The bullets are laying there too. There is a bottle of Vodka nearby, and you are beginning to drink it. Stop! Stop Now! Jesus loves you. Jesus gave his life for you so that you might live. Repeat these words right now: ďI shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.Ē You are a believer. I know it, and the Lord knows you, but you cannot exit this life in this way. Wait upon the Lord. I say, wait upon the Lord. This situation is not as hopeless as your perceive it to be. Hold on. Cry out to God. Wait upon Him.
We thank you oh God, for your loving kindness toward us. You have not judged us according to what we deserve. We bless you, oh Lord our God. We lift up your name.
The Lord wants to speak now to all who are having dreams between 2 and 3 in the morning now. You know who you are, and God knows you. You have run from him for so long. You have mocked his name. Some of you have even been blasphemers. Yet, God has been patient with you, and He still stands with hands reaching out toward you. One of you dreamt last night that three asteroids were coming, and as you were standing, you could see high, evergreen trees, and you were moving, trying to watch the falling asteroids, but you kept being blocked in your vision by tree limbs. If that is you, you need to repent, RIGHT NOW! I stand with my hands reached out all day long to an obstinate generation, says the Lord. I am calling you now. I have shown you things to come. I am confirming these things through my servants the prophets. Do you not know it is I, the Lord, who is speaking to you, drawing you, calling you to come home. Come home now, says the Lord. Come home to Jesus.
Lord you are great. You have sent forth your servants, rising up early, and sending them. They have gone forth. Thank you Lord for the privilege of being your servant. I bow at your feet in worship. I want to be clean, I want to be pure, I want to be holy, I want to be yours. And yours, I am, by your loving kindness.
Those of you to whom the Lord was speaking, please go to this link, and you will find instructions about what you need to do next.
